    Hi there!

    This is my first post on here. I recently purchased two Easter Eggers that are said to be pullets from a local general store. They are from Privett Hatchery and were sexed there. At our local feed store though, we had heard that all Easter Eggers with predominately white feathers are roosters. I have linked a picture to the chick in question. Either way we plan to give it a good home, but I was just curious :) Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!!

    My best guess is around five weeks old or roughly around there give or take a week.

    Looks about 4 to 5 weeks. Still too young to guess. Not an obvious cockerel, yet.

    No worries! And absolutely, we plan on letting this little chicken live a long and happy life with us regardless of whether it is a he or a she :)
